La Mamita

My grandma, Mamita, has been here since December from Guatemala.  She came last spring and stayed for Danny to be born and then went back to Guatemala...but she's back again!  We love her so much.  I think anyone who knows her, has met her, or has heard anyone talk about her just loves her.  She's a great lady and she's so much fun.  
Jordan said to me last week that he's not afraid of Mamita anymore.  We went to pick her up and he was excited to tell me that he isn't afraid of her like he used to be.  He's so cute.  She came over and was asking me what Jordan wanted for his birthday.  He can't get enough of Toy Story right now so here he is showing her a picture of Woody in his Toy Story chapter book!
 Jordan and I were talking about taking pictures of his Toy Story toys so we can create a Bingo game to play at his birthday party...I think he got excited and started taking pictures without me!
 He's also having a lot of fun with my Dr. Seuss stuffed animals that Chad brought in from the garage.  I guess, technically, they are Jordy's because my friend, Krystie, gave them to!...for his baby shower.  I love them so much and we've kept them really nice.  I'd like to take them to school, but for now Jordan is loving them.  More pics a la Jordan:
 Sam I Am!  Green Eggs and Ham anyone?
 More toys.  I love finding pictures on the camera that Jordan has taken...except for those he snapped when I was still in bed and it was dark and the flash was going all crazy in my eyes...those I most certainly did not like!
 Here's one Jordan took of Mamita!  She's amazing.  Her and I have been talking about Pablo Neruda and his poems lately!  She knows a ton of his poems by heart.  As a kid, she read every book she could get her hands on at her local library.  AND, she played basketball, too!
 I love this one!  She was goofing around with Jordan and he caught this pic!  She better watch out or he's going to be scared of her again!

I just love all the photos you post Jordan has taken with the camera. How cute.

I'm so glad he's not scared of Mamita anymore. She seems like a wonderful woman. So glad you get to spend time with her.

When I was little I was a little afraid of my Poppop because he was gruff and sarcastic. But he is the best Grandpa ever and has a heart of gold.
